2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Rather average apple nose, pale gold color with lace. Bland, medium sweet flavor, apple, some spice. Just a touch of tartness. Drinkable and tasty, though not very interesting. Refreshing, not much else going on.

440ml can. Golden applejuice colour. Medium head. Light aroma of fermented apples. Taste is medium dry and the finish is pleasantly tart. A bit watery palate but this one is still much better than most of the oversweetened local ciders.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold. The aroma is very fruit-driven, with lots of sweet apple and not a whole lot else. There is a bit of tartness to start, but it soon blends into a sweet fruity finish. The palate is neither too dry nor too cloying. Not the world’s most interesting cider, by a long shot, but it has a reasonable sweet-dry balance, and would be a passable easy drinker, if it wasn’t so hard to find.
